My name is the Pholosopher and I am a lover of wisdom (and Phở)

I identify with the labels anarcho-capitalist, voluntaryist, anarchist, and libertarian. I believe that each human being owns themselves and due to this, the initiation of force against other human beings is immoral.

I am passionate about this principle, the non-aggression principle (NAP), because I believe the application of this principle to all human interactions will lead humanity to true happiness, peace, and prosperity.

Freedom may be lost in the years to come if people continue accepting the false idea that governments, defined as groups of people who claim to have the “sole and legitimate right” to use violence and maintain a monopoly on force within a geographical area, are a necessary evil. Government will continue to grow in size, power, and continue to limit individual freedom, if the majority of people don’t wake up, demand self-ownership, and refuse to be forced to fund a power structure that is in its nature immoral.

Most people share common ground with me in wanting more liberty but differ when their proposed solutions are more government. My goal is to show as many people as I can the value of the non-aggression principle and that more government is equivalent to less freedom.

I love this world and I want to continue to experience the joy I feel in this life, with the people whom I cherish and value deeply. I want to continue having voluntary interactions with people and forming relationships where both people benefit.

I believe that this life is precious, and to my knowledge, we each only get one. It is time to realize that you own yourself, and that no one else has the right to claim ownership over you.

Cheers, to the spread of liberty and peace,
